My Big Fat Greek Wedding came to mind as soon as a pulled my bundt pan out to make my Kahlua Cake. I have to share this scene with you, it’s as funny today as the first time I saw it!
Original scene from My Big Fat Greek Wedding *I tried to embed the video, but it didn’t work. Click the link to watch.
I have no idea where I originally got this recipe. It’s been years (same with my bundt pan). But every once in a while, you need to pull out the old recipes and remake them. I’m glad I did!
I can’t stop watching the uTube videos for My Big Fat Greek Wedding. I think I just need to make a big bowl of popcorn and sit and watch the entire movie. Maybe it’s from marrying into a large family, but I find that movie hysterical! So much food, so many family members, practical jokes, and always loud! That’s our family! With the exception that we aren’t Greek.
Ok, this cake, is really delicious! If you like a moist, rich, chocolate cake, you need to try this. The dusting of powdered sugar is the perfect “frosting.” And, I’m a firm believer that if there’s no frosting, its okay to eat for breakfast!! Am I right or am I right?

I love old tried and true recipes. My family has a similar chocolate Bundt cake recipe and its moist every time too. Do you taste the Kahlua or does it just enhance the chocolate? Love your photos- they are giving me a cake craving.

I saw this recipe thirty years ago and it is marvelous. Try letting the cake cool and pierce the cake all over the top. Use 1/4 cup powdered auger and 3/4 cup Kahlua together and drizzle over the cake. Actually tastes better 24 hours later.
Just put this wonderful sounding cake into the oven used vanilla cake mix
Cho/pudding & top part of cherry yogurt & the 4 eggs…& oil..going to surprise my lovely wife who does so much for me…
